|A gilded Mandalay Buddha standing two feet tall strikes a graceful pose, with right hand in the varada mudra of charity and the fulfillment of wishes. Carved of dense Burmese teak wood, this early to mid-20th century figure is coated with a dark red matte lacquer highlighted with a liberal application of gilding. This Buddha’s finely carved face is striking, with especially large elongated eyes and brows. Elaborate draping and folds on the robe are emphasized with gilded scrolling and beading in thayo, a mixture of lacquer thickened with powdered bone or ash that is expertly handled by Burmese artisans. Wide petals on the double lotus throne add to the elegant look of this figure, which is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height 24” (61 cm), width 8” (20.3 cm), depth 4” (10.2 cm).
